Free film screening in Stonington

STONINGTON — A free showing of the film “A Watershed Moment” is scheduled for Thursday, June 23, at 7 p.m. at the Stonington Opera House.

“A Watershed Moment” is a short film that tells the story of many groups coming together over multiple years to restore fish passage throughout the entire Bagaduce River Watershed. A question-and-answer session featuring partners involved in the restoration projects and collaborative management efforts will follow the film.

Three coastal Maine communities, numerous nonprofits, engineering and construction companies and state and federal management agencies found a way to restore historic fish passages and do the necessary community science to reinstate and become stewards of the alewife runs in their backyards.

This event is being held in collaboration with the Maine Center for Coastal Fisheries and Maine Coast Heritage Trust.

Doors open at 6:30 and concessions will be available for purchase. Patrons must show proof of COVID vaccination at their time of entry.
